What is Kybella®?
Kybella: During the natural aging process, a loss of volume often happens in the lower face, resulting in a “double chin” appearance. Kybella injection is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to double chin elimination. Comprised of deoxycholic acid, Kybella is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fat. Deoxycholic acid is found naturally in the body and helps absorb fat. When injected into the chin area, Kybella destroys fat cells and restores definition in your facial profile. Traditionally, excess fat in the chin has been extracted with liposuction or facial surgeries. While these also remove chin fat, they also require extensive recovery and healing. Kybella is a non-surgical, painless alternative that allows the patient to return to normal activities much sooner. More than one treatment is typically required to achieve optimal results. Studies have shown that tightening of the skin to the submental area happens as well which is an added benefit.
